How long have you been dancing with SRL? Why SRL?
I’m in my 4th year. My mom found a free class online, so I tried it.
How did you get started with Irish dance?
My family loves to celebrate our Irish heritage and I liked to watch Riverdance on television, so I wanted to try it.
If you were an animal, which one would you be and why?
Either a panda or a sea horse. A panda because they are cute and cuddly and can do what they want. A sea horse because you can swim all the time and they look really cool.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Candy - I love candy because it makes me hyper.
What’s your favorite thing about dancing?
I get to meet new friends and learn new steps.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
I want to go to Paris because I want to see the Eiffel Tower and eat baguettes.
What do you daydream about?
My puppies and getting my own Pomeranian, Shitzhu, or Corgi puppy.
What’s your favorite dance-related memory?
The first Feis I did in Glastonbury. I came in second in the Reel and Light Jig.
Who do you look up to?
I look up to my mom because she works hard and does nice things for me. I want to be a teacher when I grow up like my mom, not math though, a writing or art teacher.
What’s the best advice you can give a new or younger dancer?
If you need help, then you should ask the teacher and try as hard as you can.
